What a week that was! Yes, I know. This is my 4th book; I shouldn't be surprised to learn people love my stories, should I? Well yes, I am. Why?
-I've promo'd heavily on my blog, Molly's, the loops, twitter, and FB.
-I've 'haunted' each site and responded to each comment.
-I even awarded extra books.
-I promo other authors.
-I even 'haunt' the loops, cheering on others.
-I'm participating in blog hops.
And yet, sales are down. Am I not doing enough? When I first joined the chat loops, I only belonged to three, and read each digest, even copy/pasting the excerpts which caught my attention so I'd have the links at my disposal once I could purchase the book. But as my Web presence grew, I no longer had the time to read every post. Now, I read the ones I'm most active on, and only if the subject matter catches my attention. So I'm assuming others do this too.
Maybe I need to return to my 'Heat It Up Friday' posts? Those used to garner a lot of attention. But time is a precious commodity these days.
Off The Clock should be arriving soon, and my edits for the soon-to-be-rereleased book I can't talk about yet is due in May. So maybe sales will pick up again?
I can only hope:)
